Mastering the face is one of the hardest things to accomplish. Though we've been looking at the face all our life we've never looked at it with an artists eye. We need to learn how to see the bone, dicepher the muscles from the fat and discover the crucial roll that cartlidge and ligaments have in creating the features of our face.
In this course, I'll teach you to organize the propotions of the face into a few simple rules. We'll learn to understand the planes of the face and how those planes translate into forms. We'll learn how to prioritize clean, clear form over what we think we "see". We'll do all of this by working through the problems in a structured and guided way over the course of 2.5 days in Laguna Beach.
Start Date: February 24th, Friday 6pm
End Date: February 26th, Sunday 5pm
Duration: 2.5 days
Block in the face in clay. Learn about landmarks and simple structure of the face.
Block in the face in ZBrush. Study landmarks, structure and begin to analyze planes of the face.
Discover the features of the face and how to place them within the structure of the head.
Go back into ZBrush and discover the the features, planes, & structures that create realism.
Go back to the life model and, using clay, discover how structure moves into form and find the hidden lines within the human face that establish form, proportion and the essential characture of the face.
Using your clay model, begin dissecting one half of the face to discover bone, muscle and fat.
Returning to ZBrush, focus on the bones and hard forms of the human face.
In ZBrush, work to establish flesh in your sculpt and then we'll all get together to review what we learned and what is next for us.
